As cyber attacks grow more sophisticated, many organizations are investing more into incident detection and response capabilities. Event monitoring and correlation technologies and security operations are often tied to incident handling responsibilities, but the number of attack variations is staggering, and many organizations are struggling to develop incident detection and response processes that work for different situations.
In this webcast, we'll outline the most common types of events and indicators of compromise (IOCs) that naturally feed intelligent correlation rules, and walk through a number of different incident types based on these. We'll also outline the differences in response strategies that make the most sense depending on what types of incidents may be occurring.

If you work on a network operations team, you know how increasingly hard it is to understand and ensure application performance for your end users. You need visibility into areas where issues may occur – end-user devices, network and infrastructure – in order to identify and diagnose problems quickly
and minimize downtime.
But it hasn’t been easy to gain this level of visibility across the WAN or hybrid network without deploying additional probes, packet capture devices or remote site technicians. Blind spots are everywhere making it difficult to focus on managing and monitoring the applications that matter the most to your business. And when nearly 50% of a network’s traffic is web-based and it all looks the same to the network, identifying your important applications and staying ahead of their performance problem is more difficult than ever. That could mean inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. Who wants that?
